“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

No criminal charges for driver enjoying cheeseburger

On Behalf of | Feb 16, 2015 | Criminal Defense |

There is likely little denying that today’s world runs at a faster pace than it did in previous years. Many people in Georgia have to find new and innovative ways to multitask in order to make the most use of their time. However, an out-of-state man was recently slapped with criminal charges for engaging in a behavior that may not be so uncommon while on the road.

While traveling on a Georgia highway, the man was pulled over by a police officer. At the time, he had been eating a cheeseburger as he drove. The driver claims that the attending officer insisted that he could not eat a cheeseburger while also operating his vehicle. According to the officer, eating while behind the wheel was in direct violation of state laws regarding distracted driving.

Although he was initially ticketed for the act of eating a burger while driving, the case was recently dismissed. According to the county’s Solicitor General, there simply wasn’t sufficient evidence to prosecute the man. Though he did not disclose the exact details of what led to this conclusion, he did cite an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the traffic stop and subsequent ticket.

There is little doubt that distracted driving — such as talking on a cell phone or texting while behind the wheel — can pose a serious danger to those on the road, but it appears that the Solicitor General did not believe the available evidence fully documented a violation of the applicable laws. The dismissal of his criminal charges is not an entirely uncommon event. In Georgia as across the country, lack of sufficient evidence can result in a full dismissal of the charges for a defendant.
